What To Do Until ‘The Walking Dead’ Returns

0 2373

The Walking Dead is over for the season and now all of us zombie lovers must wait until October (OCTOBER!) for it to return and grace us with its gory presence.

What are we to do until October? No, seriously. WHAT?!

We could go on with our lives for the next few months and pretend we’re not aching to see what happens next to our beloved ragtag characters, OR we can make time fly by much faster by doing some of the things that I have come up with that may help fill our TWD void.


1. Cry

A lot. Like a lot a lot.

Okay so this may not exactly be productive or helpful at all, but it’s what we all really want to do. And probably have done since the show ended. Don’t lie.

 

2. Read the comics

Hello, there are only over 100 issues out so far. I think that will tide you over for at least a little while. Plus, if you read the comics, you may be better at predicting the outcome of the show. Though those tricky writers and producers like to shake things up and stray from the comics.

3. Play the video game

Of course there’s a TWD video game, are you kidding? Though Robert Kirkman himself doesn’t like the game, maybe take a go at it and see what you think.

Or check out some other zombie-related games, such as The Last of Us.

4. Watch zombie movies

Zombie movies are abundant, so get your hands on one or twenty and watch them until my beloved Daryl Dixon—er, I mean TWD—returns.

There are the scarier zombie movies, such as 28 Days Later or Dawn of the Dead, or the less serious ones, such as Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead.

If only surviving in a zombie apocalypse were as easy as walking like them.

I’d react the same way if a zombie was in my home.

Personally, I like the less scary ones, but that’s just my scaredy-catness. Click here for a list of several other zombie films.

 

5. The Walking Dead Party

Watch the entire series from the beginning and invite everyone over—especially if they haven’t watched the show. They need to get educated, obviously. Go all out—costumes, decorations, and zombie-themed desserts. Do it. It’s the only way you’ll get through these next few months.

This is what my sister and I made for the midseason premiere on February 9th. Dirt pudding with worms, tombstones, and let's not forget the bloody limbs. Too far? No.

Advice: If you just watch the entire series by yourself, feel free to skip all beloved characters’ death scenes. Particularly Season 4 Episode 8. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then HOW DARE YOU?!

 

These next few months are going to be torture. Stick together, watch your back, and wait out the days of darkness until The Walking Dead returns in October. We’ve only got each other.
